    We know there is some self-deprecation involved. We know artists are entertainers. We know it's for the money. But dammit, it's all in the execution, and Mary J. Blige - The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul - has been catching all kinds of hell the past 24 hours for royally playing herself in a controversial new Burger King commercial in which she literally sings the praises of a fried chicken wrap . There's something about Mary standing atop a BK dining table and shilling for the second third place fast-food chain that immediately conjures memories of that other unfortunate hip-hop era Black artist endorses fried chicken moment: MC Hammer dancing his ass off for KFC chicken bits . ETL readers, the choice is yours: which one is more cringe-inducing? Watch both commercials side by side... and vote in our exclusive poll... after the jump...

    UPDATE: Burger King has pulled the ad off its youtube channel and scrubbed it from the web due to an apparent copyright issue.

      gotta say, Hammer's commercial is objectively worse, but unsurprising considering how the man was and is still in a never ending quest for that $$$. The Steppin Fetchit routine for that sweet fried chicken isn't exactly hurting his credibility. But Mary J. is regal like a queen man! Burger King! It's not even Starbucks.
